I have owned several Jennings pistols. They are reliable and unusually accurate. They are made of pot metal but otherwise a decent inexpensive gun.

I've heard the opposite from others.

Mine liked to stovepipe and it was not particularly accurate. And it wasn't really the gun's fault,but the grip was too small so the slide had a tendency to cut the webbing between the thumb an forefinger.
I like my revolvers much better. As soon as I find a Gun Buy Back, I will try to get rid of the Bryco.
So I can a replace it with new Springfield XD or, even better, a Winchester M1887 replica by Norinco...

I agree.

I can't afford a better, small carry gun, so I dropped $100.00 and bought a Bryco .380. I've had it for 2 years, carry often and with the exception of the first type of ammo (hollow point)haven't had one jam. Last time at the range, I was hitting decent patterns at 20ft.

My brother has a Walther PPK .380. He paid $3-400 used and has chronic jamming problems.

Sure, it's cheap and poorly made, not designed to fire thousands of rounds, but I can't really find much to complain about. And, I've never shot anyone while unloading it. In fact, I never gave a thought that it was a defect to have to switch opff the safety to actuate the slide. That seems like common sense to me. Babysitter was wrong, and the victim has been turned into a dunce.
